Days fly by.
Decided it was time to call it quits with my mentor. Gonna miss our weekly sessions, but I learned as much as I could from him. He taught me a ton of things, like improvising, finger shapes, playing without music, the rock world, effects (electronic toys), pentatonic scales and modes, and on and on.
He told me about a recording studio nearby for when I’m ready for it.
Talked about the organic process of taking things to the next level by finding other like~minded musicians.
So my next plan is to work through a set of music and recordings that I have, specifically for rock violin.
Everything moves too damn slow. I want to be playing on stage NOW with a band, dammit! Rock Orchestra Camp ~ remember I was going? ~ would have been exactly what I need, but am not able to this year.
So what does a violin chick do? Gets resourceful. My goal by the end of this year is to be able to play respectable rock stuff. Something specific ~ something barely achievable.
Ya can’t have open ~ ended goals. Those are just dreams. A certain thing by a certain date.
Check back here for my next post. Sheeeeaaaaatttt!!
